In-Flight Essentials


As it's the summer holidays, many of us are packing our bags and heading off on holiday. If you are travelling by plane (my favourite form of transport!) then you may find it useful to keep a few beauty bits with you on the flight. The air on flights is very different to on ground level, meaning you lose moisture much quicker. These products will help you keep hydrated and feeling fresh after a long flight. 

I never fly with makeup on, I like to feel bare faced and clean (personal preference). Many flights now provide food, and with toilets not being the quickest option to stay clean I always take a hand sanitizer, more specifically Cuticura Passion & Mango Gel, to make sure I get rid of many nasty germs before eating flight food. As mentioned before, moisture levels are down on flights, so a hand cream is a must to keep those paws nice and soft for the journey. My choice is Soap and Glory Hand Food as it's the perfect consistency and sinks in quickly. Now depending on how long your flight is you may choose to skip out on this, but I always take a tube of pretty thick moisturiser, for if my face is feeling a bit tight or dehydrated. The Nivea Soft Cream is great because not only can it be used on your face, but on your body too - perfect for dry elbows or anywhere else. 

Like I said, I'm not a makeup wearer on flights, but just before we land I like to add a like something-something to make sure I feel fresh and presentable after a long flight. I don't know what I'd do without my Travalo, (currently carrying Daisy by Marc Jacobs). Of course you can opt for a rollerball or whatever takes your fancy. Finally I like to carry either a tinted lip balm or my Clinique Moisturising Gloss in Raspberry as it hydrates while adding a beautiful wash of colour to help brighten your face. Of course, keeping all products in a zip-lock bag and under 100ml is compulsory, making these my chosen products that will be with me when I hit the skies. 

What products to you take on flights?
